Do You Feel What I Feel? How to Emotionally Contain and Regulate Ourselves and Others
Wednesday 29th June 2022, 09:00 –16:00 Full day

Wellbeing for Education Recovery Programme 2022

This training will explore the concepts of dysregulation, co-regulation, self-regulation and group-regulation in a direct yet safe manner. There will be opportunity to consider our own and others regulatory capacity (both developmentally and circumstantially) within a school context and to explore a range of regulatory activities that can be adapted for use within any context.

This course is aimed at all staff from Primary, Secondary, Special schools and Colleges. 

Areas Covered: -

  •  Developmental stages of co- and self-regulation and their role in understanding and managing behaviours, reactions to feelings and the things happening in the world around you.
  • The importance of looking after ourselves and regulating our own emotions in order to support others to do so
  • When children become dysregulated and cannot regulate their own emotions, we can contain them through co-regulation and development of self; in doing this we can help children to learn to tolerate sensations, situations and distress whilst forming appropriate responses
  • Opportunities to explore resources and develop ideas for sensory breaks / a regulatory toolkit (i.e. a calm box)

Course Outcomes: -

  • To understand that self-regulation differs at different points in our development
  • To consider our role in supporting other to self-regulate.
  • To identify factors that impact on a person’s regulatory capacity and emotional containment and how this might look in the classroom (both for us and others)
  • To understand why children may become dysregulated within a school environment and develop strategies to support them
  • To identify the importance of sensory breaks and/or a regulatory toolkit and how they can impact on regulation and learning
  • To compare calming and energising activities and ways to use them outside of and/or integrate them into the classroom
